I'm pretty sure the gondolas can handle ECVs. At least from what I've seen of other designs it will be doable.

Nothing to cure my anxiety while being up in one though
I'll try for sure as I do with everything, but we'll be taking the shortest leg first time

Well that just means itís time to retreat to air conditioning... I have some suggestions.

any engineer, imagineer or whomever that thinks a box made primarily of glass and metal in florida does not need air conditioning - even without 8-10 bodies in it warming it up even more - is off his/her rocker. that is absolute madness. i don't care what kind of venting system it has. once you add the warm bodies to it as well - it will be hell.

also think of this by way of example: the people mover is continuous loading, yet how often does that thing stop? A LOT and for a variety of reasons. there may not be anything wrong with the equipment (e.g. someone had trouble getting on or off, so they have to stop it). every ski lift, gondola or other continuous loading conveyance i have ever been on has had pauses or stops in operation/motion.

now let's combine that with no AC. simply put, it is pure madness to think that not having AC in these gondolas is even remotely acceptable, even if we believe (naively) that there will not be pauses or stops in operation/motion.
